Help Overclocking my phenom 2 965 please? I'm confused on the cpu-nb. - Page 2

Your issues have strange written all over them.

I had that issue once with Prime95. Not a clue what I did to fix it but it's only happened once.

Try the 10.12 drivers again and compare FPS.
I suspect the issue is actually that your 3D settings in CCC were changed when you updated to the newest version so look back through them and see if they've been changed.
Also, did you sweep away your old drivers?

I've reinstalled the drivers like 4 times lol. I do this: Delete in control panel, restart, run driversweeper, restart, install new again. Right now I'm running the 11.1E(hotfix) drivers and they still say that the ccc version is 10.12. As for the settings, they're the same as in the actual 10.12 ccc i had, but I'm gonna play around with them soon and maybe make couple of dif profiles for dif games( i heard that's what people do lol, maybe I'll download theirs).

Right now I'm kinda happy with the performance even though i lost 5fps in bc2( maybe more since I OC'd my cpu/NB). I get 90fps stable in black ops, 70-90 fps in BC2 multiplayer and around 30-45fps in GTA4. In GTA4 i had to turn off "Shadow quality" or set it to low, and that gave me like 5-15 more fps in big city areas. Even Distance view does give me that much performance if i set it to 0, I'm running everything max except for Shadow Quality right now.

I'll try to benchmark with the old drivers soon but not right now. I've been fixing and OCing my pc for the past few days too much and I barely took the time to enjoy it lol. So i wanna kill some black ops zombies for a change.. Ty for all the help, I'll post the comparison between 10.12 and 11.1e drivers in a day or to.. should be interesting to see if it's the vid card that's fcking up or the OC not proving itself.

There must be some bug with CCC because I know I'm running the 11.1 drivers but mine still says 10.12 as well.
Yeah, it'll be interesting to see what the issue is.
And I wish I could've helped more but your welcome nonetheless.
